America's Best New BBQ
Wilson’s BBQ, St. Louis
This no-frills, takeout-only newcomer in South City churns out pork ribs, beef ribs, and pulled pork served with plenty of thick, Kansas City–style sauce, plus sweet pepper slaw and chunky potato salad. Be sure to ask about the specials and about chef Debra Wilson’s gooey, stick-to-your-ribs mac and cheese (it’s not on the menu). For dessert, there’s banana pudding and vanilla cake.
